How does total points allowed by a defense work?

Total points allowed is the number points a team allows their opponent to score.

Leagues have the option of only counting points allowed when the defense is on the field

Points that always count against a defensive team:

  • Fieldgoals of ANY length for ANY reason.
  • Touchdowns, and accompanying extra point or 2-point conversion, if scored by the opposing offense.
  • If a league uses a combined defense and special teams position, then punt returns, kickoff returns, blocked punts, and blocked fieldgoals for touchdowns, and accompanying extra points or 2-point conversions.

If “Do NOT count points against the Defense if that team is not on the field at the time of the score.” is checked, the following points do not count against a defensive team:

  • Interception return for touchdown and and accompanying extra point or 2-point conversion.
  • Fumble return for touchdown and and accompanying extra point or 2-point conversion.
  • Any safety for any reason.
  • If a league uses separate defense and special teams positions, then punt returns, kickoff returns, blocked punts, and blocked fieldgoals for touchdowns, and accompanying extra points or 2-point conversions.
